Synopsis

Law and Youth Work by Mary Maguire

This book offers a practical and straightforward approach to understanding how the law protects, empowers and regulates young people's lives. The implications for the professional youth worker of a wide range of dilemmas are considered. Workers are encouraged to consider what is meant by rights and, through practical examples, to examine their own beliefs and ethical codes, particularly where they conflict with established rules. The book combines real-life examples with discussion points on some of the key principles of law, inviting readers to consider what it means to be professional and to promote and support young peoples' rights.
